By “unbiased” I mean coverage that does not allege chaos, Pakistani tweets, a few tukdas misleading innocent farmers, “Khalistani” infiltration etc.
These are farmers, they are here in their thousands, they know exactly what they are doing, and they may be our last line of defence against the devastation being wreaked by Hindutva politics and corporate capitalism on an India that we stood by and were also deeply critical of, too.
If we want to continue being critical, it’s the farmers who will ensure us our freedom to do so.
One thought on “Reclaiming the Republic – January 26, 2021”
Samyukt Kisan Morcha has, quite sensibly, called off the ‘tractor parade’ (Indian Express reports/Jan 26,9.06 pm).
SKM should lose no time in carrying an independent an investigation on its own to identify the ‘violent elements’ that disturbed the peaceful parade.
SKM has decided to resume the protest in the form of a march to Parliament on Feb 1 — by foot. This is a welcome decision.
A long view of the farmers’ protest is that it will ultimately take the form of a nationwide general strike. . .
